SIESTA KEY, Fla. - Where did a life-size Legoman, which washed up on Siesta Key beach, come from?

That's the question people in Sarasota County are asking.

Jeff Hindman found it while walking on the beach Tuesday morning. It was red, yellow and green and, Hindman said, was about eight-feet tall.

The figure apparently surfed ashore overnight. Its shirt read "NO REAL THAN YOU ARE."

It’s just a left over from the #OccupyLegoLand protests.
Throw it back in the ocean.

I’ve got a 9 year old son who would put that in his room in a heartbeat. He’d have to kick out his little brother to do it, but hey, that’s the breaks...

This is why we need to build a wall at our southern border. If this guy is swimming here, think of how many Legomen are simply walking across the border illegally.

Washed up on the beach or placed?

Looks more like a prank.

Since he got to Florida by water he's probably Cuban. Check for a bongo drum and a lego Lucy.

He can vote on the DNC ticket.

If he has any little legos, they get free College tuition.

I would like to remind “Journalists” that a “life-sized lego man” is only about an inch tall.

Just because the Smart Car is the size and mass of Michelle Obama, doesn’t make the Smart Car “Life size”.

"Looks more like a prank."

It does seem suspect that it came right after LEGOLAND opened near Orlando. . . . . . .

No Doubt that it’s time for a full-scale Congressional investigation into this.

Wish I’d found it. Something like that would go for major cash on ebay.
